Phelps Hospital Unveils $8.4 Million Imaging Center

Congratulations to BCW Member Phelps Hospital in Sleepy Hollow on the completion of its new $8.4 million imaging suite which is expected to be operational in February. The 3,800-square-foot suite houses a scanner manufactured by Seimens Healthineers that simultaneously does Positron Emission Tomography (PET) and Computerized Tomography Imaging (CT) imaging. Obtaining both PET and CT images previously required two separate sessions using two separate pieces of equipment.

Phelps, which is a Northwell Health hospital, will use the new suite for treatment of patients at the Northwell Health Cancer Institute at Phelps. In addition, patients being diagnosed and treated for issues such as cardiac problems, seizures and dementia will undergo imaging procedures there. The new imaging suite is located on the first floor of the hospital, not far from the lobby at the hospital’s main entrance.

“It’s very exciting because we’re able to fully enhance our radiological capabilities here, our imaging studies, but even more importantly we’re going to be able to add to our cancer center and be able to provide care for our cancer patients that we otherwise weren’t able to,” said Eileen Egan, Executive Director of Phelps. She explained that when ordinary X-rays or an MRI scan are not able to help physicians pinpoint problems affecting patients, PET/CT imaging may be useful.”

“It’s an advanced level of imaging that really may help identify any problems that may otherwise not have been picked up by other imaging modalities. The equipment is very expensive but we anticipate with the volume of patients that we’re going to be able to see and treat we know it’s going to pay for itself very quickly,” she noted.
